Boxes, A Photograph

“The architects who benefit us most maybe those generous enough to lay aside their claims to genius in order to devote themselves to assembling graceful but predominantly unoriginal boxes. Architecture should have the confidence and the kindness to be a little boring.”
– Alain de Botton

    I am not sure I would call this boring architecture. Surely you captured its forms and space beautifully in this photograph.

      Thank you. Boring? Maybe not so much. Although the building is so massive, with no surrounding gardens, that it almost lends itself to deserve a slight yawn.
